Went to WP/MJ over X-mas for the 2nd time. WP not very challenging and poorly laid out for beginners and boarders. Too many flats. On the other hand MJ is awesome. Lots of blues and black bumps, great tree skiing and the bowl is really cool but the liftline to the top is usually pretty long. They need a four man chair to get to the top. Also the Cirque was closed so that was a little disappointing, especially for the beginner and boarder who were with me. It was a tough trip for them around that catwalk only to get there and find out that it was closed. We thought they should post the closing up top to avoid that situation. Slopes were pretty crowded but it was X-mas and that's to be expected. All in all it's a pretty cool place, especially for a group or family with a wide range of skier levels. The staff at the rental and retail shops were very friendly and helpful. Didn't dine shop or stay in town but it seems like it has everything you would want in those areas.
